After your reformatting you removed the VGA driver and your driver is not a built in driver along with windows

Solution - open your pc note down the vga card chip details over the chip or from the manufacturer label or are you able to watch closely while your computer power up - It will display about the VGA card properties such as manufacturer it capacity etc....

Go to www.google.com search for it driver from the net and download it and install it in your pc - solve all your problems

May be now your sound also not working same thing you do or find a driver cd you got along with your computer - run it

Thanks Hothawk

Monitor troubling by changing the menu settings by itself


If the monitor only displays 640x480 & 16 colors, it sounds like the display adapter is using standard windows svga drivers. (Unless you have a VERY old monitor that can't display more than that.) Have you tried reinstalling the drivers that came with your video card ?

Click on "start", then "Run".
type in "msconfig" (no quotation marks)
It should open the system configuration-thingy.
If it is set to anything other than "normal startup" (ie diagnostic startup), change it back to "normal startup". Click "apply", "ok", and then restart your computer. You will hopefully be able to change your settings again.

If everything fails change your video card

Thanks.If this solution works for you then please rate me.

Pixels only goes to 640X480


When you cannot increase the screen resolution nor a higher color bit, this usually means the video driver has defaulted to standard VGA driver and 8 or 16 bit color.
Install or re-install the latest video driver for your model video card.
When the correct video driver is installed you will be able to change the screen resolution and 32 color bit.

My monitor is stuck in the lowest resolution


Distorted video after increasing the resolution in Windows. The resolution has been set higher than what is supported by the monitor, ... we recommend 640 x 480 with 256 colors or the lowest available setting.
Computer always boots into Windows safe mode. When booting into safe mode, the lowest settings are used, including your video card. This means that the resolution is 640x480, 16 colors when in safe mode.
